Join us to learn about Volunteer Clear, a cost effective and constantly updated Background Check Program.
Background Screening is an important risk management tool for nonprofit organizations offering services to vulnerable individuals, However, creating, managing and updating a Background Checks program can be expensive and time consuming. Now, there is a better solution!
The Center is excited to be teaming up with First Point to offer an all-inclusive background check program. “Volunteer Clear” can be used by any of our nonprofit affiliates. We are pleased to also be able to offer KeepWatch, a Nightly Monitoring Service which screens (every 24 hours) each volunteer in Volunteer Clear. This service tremendously enhances your volunteer background check program. We alert you in real time with any violations.
Volunteer Clear is an online platform in which the nonprofit organization OR the volunteer can process the background screening check. Each agency will have their own portal/login and can easily access records online
